Trout got the Angels offense started with a bang in this one, lining a James Shields offering over the wall in left to give them a 1-0 lead, it would prove to be very short lived though. The favorite to take home American League MVP honors, Trout had just one hit in 11 at-bats in the series (.089).

The overwhelming favorite to take home American League MVP honors, Trout is hitting .290/.379/.566 with 36 long balls, 111 RBI and 16 stolen bases on the season.

Trout leads the league with 107 runs scored and 107 RBI, he's moved into a tie for third in homers and he's third behind Jose Abreu and Victor Martinez in OPS, while obviously having greater defensive value than those two.

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in the Angels' 8-2 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Trout hit the one-out RBI double in the fourth inning off of Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi, knocking the pitcher out of the game. It was Trout's 92nd RBI of the season. The three hits bumped his average up to .289. This three-hit effort isn't the norm in front of the home crowd, as Trout's numbers are noticeably lower at home (.258/.351/.525) than they are on the road (.312/.390/.584). "Noticeably lower" is still really good in Trout's case. Work on that home average, maybe? On the year he's slashing .289/.374/.558.
